2013 saw the introduction of JK Hockey Academies. These are evening based coaching programmes (4,6 or 8 sessions) for players on an invitation only basis. Players invited will have either impressed coaches on previous JK Hockey coaching days/camps or be known to coaches through their school based work.
Academies are for girls and boys from a range of schools and clubs in the Somerset area. Jamie hopes to really stretch the more able players and allow them to benefit from a high intensity coaching environment. We are keen to promote excellence in hockey throughout his local area.
Senior Academies are run by Jamie Kingstone and cost £150/£75 (8/4 week courses).
The eight week Junior Academies cost £125
New for 2021 – Six week Mini Academy (mixed – summer term) – cost £50
All junior and senior academy sessions are 1.5 hours and mini academy sessions are 45 minutes. All sessions are based at King’s Bruton School.
